Laoch means warrior in Gaelic. It's pronounced, "lay-ock". Neva chose this name to reflect her belief that each pregnant person is a warrior in their own right. They are the foundation of their families; they are the seat of communities. They work tirelessly to keep their families safe and together every day throughout the world. It is this fighting spirit that carries us through one of the most vulnerable times: childbirth.
